Regional Forums

Each year NYSACAC partners with colleges and high schools throughout the state that serve as host sites for a professional development forum series addressing relevant topics and current trends in the field of college admission counseling. 

With spring just around the corner, it can only mean one thing: the NYSACAC Professional Development Forums are on their way. This year, we’ll focus on changes in college admissions and discuss the outcomes of these transitions as we close out this year’s admission cycle. Panelists will share their experience of the past year and provide their expertise for looking ahead to future cycles.  Key topics will include but are not limited to: the new SAT, early FAFSA, and the Coalition Application. Participants will be able to ask questions, as well as share ideas and opinions related to the work we do and how we best support our students and families in these times of transition. Forums will begin with check-in and continental breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude by 12:00 p.m.

This year’s dates and locations are:

University of Rochester: Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Hofstra University: Monday, March 20, 2017
Fordham University- Lincoln Center: Tuesday, March 21, 2017
